It's Been a While...

I had such high hopes for actually keeping up with my teaching through this blog.  That definitely did not happen, but at least I am going to get some use out of it.  I currently am in my 4th semester in the MSA program through Appalachian State University's Distance Education program.  For one of my classes, I focused on at-risk males and completed an action plan that included a book study of Eric Jensen's "Engaging Students With Poverty In Mind: Practical Strategies for Raising Achievement".  Over the next few weeks, I will lead our staff through this book study on the blog as we look to expand our ways of engaging the students that we teach.  Currently we have 54% free and reduced lunch and that number continues to grow.
